1843 · The Disruption in the Church of Scotland

Age 2

The Disruption of 1843 was a division within the Church of Scotland, which 474 evangelical ministers of the Church broke away from the Church to form the Free Church of Scotland. They didn’t reject the principles of the Church of Scotland but were trying to establish a purer version of the Church without the King or Parliament being its head. It had huge effects not only within the Church of Scotland, but also with Scottish civic life.

Name Meaning

Scottish: probably from Middle English beverage ‘drink’ (Old French bevrage, from beivre ‘to drink’). The term was used in particular of a drink bought by a purchaser to seal a bargain, and the surname may have been acquired as a nickname in this context. Reaney adduces evidence that suggests that the nickname may have been bestowed on a man who made a practice of getting free drinks by entering into bargains which he did not keep.
